The coconut sugar gives these cookies a "burnt-toffee" taste that goes so well with the salted caramel flavor. In fact, if you didn't know, toffee is super similar to caramel, except it's made with brown sugar instead of white sugar. Also, toffee is cooked at a higher temperature and for longer, which give this "burnt" taste and makes it harder when you talked about the candy itself.
